Birthday Weekend Fun!

Hi Loves,

Well, it came and went and its funny how people ask on your birthday, "do you feel older?!" This year, I answered that question with yes.  From my previous post, I feel as though this past year was a huge year of growth for me, so without a doubt, yes I feel older.  I am so thankful for all of the opportunities God has given me this past year.  Good or bad moments, I have grown from every one and am thankful for it.

My amazing fiance made this birthday weekend everything that I could have hoped it could be.  He is a remarkable man.

First, he surprised me with a special cake from my favorite bakery, The Square Rabbit.

It was beyond divine.

...This little treasure my friends, is the best cheesecake I have ever had.  Complete with whipped cream, caramel and chocolate drizzle.  I suggest everyone get their own from Fresh Market, now.

Saturday, we attended the NC State/Clemson football game with some great friends and family.  It was truly a great time, especially seeing the Wolfpack upset the Tigers! My Pirates won too :) All around a great day for college football!

 Saturday night following the football game, we walked to my favorite sushi spot Sono and enjoyed some delicious sushi.  After dinner was filled with cocktails and a brisk rickshaw ride home!

We rounded out my birthday weekend with brunch and a surprise visit from my sweet mom! It was great to have her in town for the day.  She is a sweetheart.

Thanks to sweet Austin, my addiction to taking pictures now will grow even more since he surprised me with an amazing new camera for my birthday! He also surprised me with awesome seats to see The Christmas Carol December 10th.  I am so excited I can't hardly stand it!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I am off to veg out on the couch for the remainder of my day :)
